More excellence from P&F - anyone know why Scofield replaced Larry Campbell for the two Shea shows?

Fire is the goods in the 2nd set, along with a pretty searing Lovelight; I really do dig the acoustic guitar present in about every other tune - it brings more of that country twang that was unique with this particular lineup.

Subject: Wow!
i lost my copy of this show and decided to make a new copy. Holy burns on the guitar players? No offense to any of them. Saw Warren play this summer (08). How about Jackie? That kid can smoke! And also no offense to Phil, but i would rather hear Chris sing any day!

i don't wish to disagree with anyone, just make this my opinion. we all have different tastes, but hats off to the reviewer that mentioned jimmy herring. moreover, let us not forget that
little ol' axe slinger from asheville. maybe you've heard of him...Warren Haynes.

Subject: Competition
I hadn't realized that this was/is some kind of contest to see/hear who can knock the whatever out of whomever else. The cool thing about this archive is that it provides for alot of different players to wander in and out of various venues with various players and bands and we get to hear it all. For free even. Relax and enjoy the variations.

p.s.- My hamster can wallop the poo out of your parrot.

No one plays more tastefully than scofield, not even Trey. Check out Out Louder.
Reviewer: vancman - - September 20, 2006
Subject: I saw Jerry
I saw Jerry during the Fire on the Mountain jam. He was floating and very pleased.

Unbelievable. I had to listen to the show twice. First time I was floored.

Subject: yeah well
i have a feeling when trey anastasio plays with phil in july at darien lake he will knock the shit out of scofield.

hands down.
nuff said.

Im going to go out on a limb here and say that Sco is better than any guitar player phil and phriends had/have. He has total control over his instrument, plays with color, enthusiasm and seems very honest about playing different kinds of music and bringin new things to the phil table. This guy is top notch in the jazz world and i only hope that he is a mainstay when they come to the Beacon in Feb.

This sounds freeking great to me - Whats with everyone lately?
Reviewer: fitzy77 - - January 5, 2006
Subject: Which one is Sco?
Not to be an idiot, but is Scofield the one ripping loud and confidently out of the left channel, or the meek barely audible (first set - improves in the second) player with the dry, cold tone coming out of the right channel? Sorry, but it's hard to judge who's right without knowing which one is Sco. I am a fan of the Warren Haynes period band and I haven't heard enough of Barry Sless and Co. to immediately be able to peg his style. If Scofield's on the left, he was smokin', if he was on the right, then I agree that I don't see the hype. Thanks in advance for someone's answer.
Reviewer: SwirledWorldEntertainment - - January 4, 2006
Subject: Say What?
Sco not sounding right for the Phil are you crazy? Sco was hot, hot, hot. Way hotter than Cambell could even dream of being. The show I saw with Cambell would have been lame if it hadden't been for Seless's knowledge of the music. There were about 6 times in Pittsburgh where they would kick into a song and Barry was off in a similar song, Phil would catch on and the rest of the band just played what Phil told them too. The whole night he had to be on the mic telling Cambell (and at the time I thought Mookie) what to do. The night with Sco it was nothing more than a nod, or just the look. Also what's this with Sco not being convicted? Were you at Either of his shows? OMG. I have never seen a cat come in for two shows with a colossal book of music to add flavor to what was already going on. On top of that he was intently studying the teleprompter just waiting for the exact second he could accent Robinson's vocals with a few notes. Impressive to say the least.
Reviewer: ANYJ - - January 1, 2006
Subject: wha?
1. This is a great site, I was psyched to find this recording here!
2. In reference to the comments about Sco 'lacking conviction' or 'seeming unsure of himself,' I would have to disagree - have a listen to the last 1/4 of Althea. As far as Sco, I believe that the type of music that he plays includes, at least in part, the type of music that Miles Davis played, since he was in that band for a while. If any of you like the playing in this show, pick up the 'jam' album he did with Adam Deitch, it rocks.
3. Donna Jean could teach Mr. Robinson a thing or two about singing in key. (yikes!).
4. Overall it starts out a bit rough, but the group really hits their stride halfway through, which is to be expected given the sit-in factor. Totally worth adding to the collection though.

I was at this show and i have to admit i wasnt real fond of Scofield with this band.He has pretty good sound but his playing style just doesnt seem to fit real well IMO.Anyway, overall the sound quality is fantastic as with just about every P&F's sbd releases.Thanks Phil for being generous with your shows.

Subject: Just Not Hearing It.
I hate to be the cynical one but I cant tell anything great about John Scofield in this show. He cant hang with the level of intensity that the rest of the guys produce. Im not sure what other kind of music he plays, and im sure he's great at it but not Grateful Dead Music! He had some good licks here and there, yes. He just seems so unsure of himself. very few notes were hit with conviction.

Berry Sless is Very Good. Not Jimmy Herring But Very Good. Larry Campbell is also very good. Just needs to learn the songs better.

Phil and Molo are Incredible. Mookie had some very nice keyboard in Candyman.

I would have to say Keep Sless on Guitar Campbell on other Strings (mandolin, violin etc.) and bring back Jimmy!

...this is a great show. It really reminds me of the Dead shows I listen to from when they were playing smaller and more intimate venues. It's a great listen. Cool intros and great outros... Giddy-up!

This is a wonderful recording of a great show on a fantastic tour. The second set is borderline legendary with the Shakedown>Althea>New Speedway>Fire run. Scofield was a treat. Wish Campbell could have been there too. Chris Robinson did a fine job throughout. Phil - if you are out there, I hope you are having as much fun making this music as we are listening. Thanks for releasing the DSBD. See you at the Beacon.

This is one to have...Sound 10....songs 10...F ratboy I have a new one to rock too....Thank you Phil.
Reviewer: razorsherpa - - December 27, 2005
Subject: yay scofield!
it's an odd combo, but it works well. Highlights for me are Candyman, Althea, and Franklins.

The recording is an insane quality soundboard, no worries there.

One star off for the first set, but the second set is great.
